What's going on, Albuquerque?
A mansion located in a residential neighborhood in the Southeast Heights.
This house was built and outfitted by two Spanish gentlemen in the late 70s or early 80s. After they died a relative took on the house until her own death, and it's sort of made its way through the local Spanish expat community since then. I believe the current owner is a fascinating character who most recently worked as a Spanish/Latin teacher for APS, but has a colorful history that included a career as a professional soccer player in Spain, among other things.
I got to visit a few times with my Cub Scout pack in the early 80s...it was a pretty amazing mix of Spanish Baroque-meets-Beau Arts-meets-Dallas. There's a reflecting pond and formal garden in the back.
Thanks for the info Phil. Really interesting. D
Hi again Phil, I posted most of your info on my FB page (I put the pics there too). Hope that's OK! D
Not a problem, Dee!
